Learning Together in Hungary
This community is aimed at teachers who have recently visited Hungary and want to continue sharing their experiences and applying their findings to their own classrooms. In particular, we will be trying to find out exactly what it is that makes children in Hungary so good at maths when they don't start formal schooling until they are 6 to 7 years old and lessons finish at 12 noon!

Lesson Study
The "Teaching Gap" by Stigler and Hiebert highlights the success of lesson study in Japan, but can this be translated to this country? This community is aimed at those groups of teachers who want to know more about it, and who are willing to share their own journey of discovery with others. It is not for the faint-hearted, but for those who really want to find out for themselves.

Maths Trails
Mathematics is not a closed box. It does not exist in isolation, and as with all things, it needs to interact with other subjects if it is to flourish. A maths trail creates natural links to many other subjects in the curriculum. In working collaboratively, staff can support each other, benefiting from the wealth of good practice they have to offer.
